This course covers the techniques of working with green willow. It will be out-doors in the College willow bed so warm clothing, boots and waterproofs will be needed. The willow will be provided and you will have the opportunity to make a willow hurdle or to try living willow sculpture, make a rough basket or bean pyramid, or anything else you feel inspired to make on the day. The course aims to cover the management of willow coppices; coppicing willow to produce useable stems; living willow sculpture; construction of a pyramid plant support, hurdle and basket.
